Oviedo (EFE).- The general secretary of the PP of Asturias, Álvaro Queipo, has assured today that, as a matter of coherence, his party should join forces with the Forum throughout the autonomous community and that it would be “disappointing” if from the regionalist formation “open to negotiate with the PSOE”.
After collecting his act as deputy and that of the head of the popular list in the elections on May 28, Diego Canga, who will attend the investiture session as a candidate, Queipo has indicated that “wherever they can, it is necessary that PP and Forum join forces” and give stability to the municipalities.
For consistency, but also because it is “what is expected of them”, the popular leader has insisted that they must understand each other in order to form governments throughout the entire regional territory.
Meeting of “cordiality” with Forum
“I hope that Forum understands the same. It would be disappointing if they open up to negotiations with the PSOE”, he underlined when asked about the discomfort that in this formation has meant that the PP assumes that the vote of the only deputy from the regionalist party in the investiture session will be for Canga .
Queipo has assured that a few days ago he had a meeting with the president of the Forum, Carmen Moriyón, in an “excellent and cordial atmosphere”, but that he only likes to talk about agreements when they have culminated and have been fruitful for society.
“I have all my hopes in their good work and good intentions, and I hope that the negotiations progress favourably”, said the elected deputy who has recognized that right now the negotiations at the regional level are on the table of the socialist leader, Adrián Barbón, and that he should be the one to explain what he is doing.
From the PP, he added, they do go to this watchdog so that everything is done “with guarantees and respect for the Asturians”, although in his opinion, whatever happens, “the result is not going to be good.”
According to Queipo, they are “very intrigued” about how the relations of the socialist group with the rest of the Principality’s General Board will be during the legislature that is now beginning, but above all “when it comes to forming a government”, which may go through a bipartite or tripartite.
